Claude, I'll re-itterate my request that you configure your vacation rules 
to not auto-reply to mailing list postings and only respond to email 
directly addressed to you. Responding to mailing list posts is generally 
considered to be quite rude, and I'd rather not have to start refusing your 
mail at the SMTP layer.

I'm CCing the list because the snort users list is by far the worst list I 
subscribe to as far as vacation-rule autoresponders. Get a clue people, 
autorespond to emails addressed to you, and ignore anything addressed to 
anyone else that gets delivered to you. This prevents all kinds of 
annoyances like responding to emails addressed to your mailing lists, 
prevents some of the easier cases of mail-looping, doesn't auto-reply to 
most spam so you don't get a pile of undeliverables, and is not a 
complicated thing to do.

I really enjoy helping people out, but it annoys me when half the postings 
I make to the list get some braindead vacation rule responding to it.
